Harshing your mellow since 9/01

Reality is such a bitch

It’s not that they don’t know anything. It’s that so much of what they know isn’t so.

First, the question of terror-related crimes committed by people who come from the seven nations covered by the Trump order. Many of the president’s adversaries have claimed that no terror-related crimes have been committed by nationals of the affected countries — Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Yemen, Syria, Iraq, and Iran. “The various people who have, in fact, committed terrorist acts in this country, from 9/11 on, none of them came from any of the seven countries that are the subject of the president’s executive order,” New York Democratic Rep. Jerrold Nadler said on CNN Jan. 28.

Even James Robart, the judge on the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Washington State who temporarily stopped the Trump order, believed the talking point.

“How many arrests have there been of foreign nationals for those seven countries since 9/11?” Robart asked a Justice Department lawyer in court on Feb. 3. When the lawyer said she didn’t know, Robart said, “Let me tell you. The answer to that is none, as best I can tell.”

It turns out the judge, and Nadler, and everybody else repeating the talking point had it wrong. Last year the Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on Immigration and the National Interest released information showing that at least 60 people born in the seven countries had been convicted — not just arrested, but convicted — of terror-related offenses in the United States since Sept. 11, 2001. And that number did not include more recent cases like Abdul Artan, a Somali refugee who wounded 11 people during a machete attack on the campus of Ohio State University last November.

Okay, all that’s bad enough. But of course it gets worse:

Now, here is the federal statute. I’m just gonna read it one more time. I know you’ve heard this, but I’m gonna read it one more time because this is why I’m so livid. It is title eight U.S. Code, “Inadmissible Aliens.”

This is the law of the land since the 1950s, and it was written by Congress and signed by the prexy. “Suspension of Entry or Imposition of Restrictions by President — Whenever the President finds that the entry of any aliens or of any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, he may by proclamation,” meaning just by saying so, “and for such period as he,” meaning he alone, “shall deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or nonimmigrants, or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate.”

The translation for this is: The president of the United States, according to statutory United States law, has sole and total power over who and who doesn’t get into this country for as long as he may deem necessary when such entry would be judged to be by him detrimental to the interests of the United States.

I don’t care what you think of Trump, the rule of law is the glue that holds this country together, and there is simply no way that a competent judge who respects the law could stay the presidential executive order based on external political concerns because the law covers everything! Even if the president said during the campaign that he was going to ban Muslims. You realize that’s the basis for Robart and the Ninth Circuit, one of the many bases for telling Trump he can’t do this?

Something he said on the campaign trail, when common sense says if it was a Muslim ban, why is he leaving 85% of the Muslim population free and open to come into the country? This could not be more clear. You know, normally legalese, you gotta go out and hire somebody, pay a thousand dollars an hour to translate this stuff. But this is just crystal clear. There’s no ambiguity. There’s no confusion. There no double or triple meanings here. It’s clear.

Speaking strictly for myself, I’m still trying to figure out just what it is these murderous savages bring to the table that we in America need, or even want. I’m also having a little trouble with the idea that, after their having turned their own countries into unspeakable dens of horror and barbarism, it is somehow incumbent on us to fix that for them—or to rescue them from it. The idea that they have some unalienable right to immigrate here for any reason at all, good or bad, is kind of beyond my ken at present, too. But hey, maybe it’s just me.

Update! If we don’t let them in, they’ll kill us.

If they’ll go off and join ISIS if we don’t let them in, what happens when we do let them in?

Why would we want to take in people who express their disagreement with our politics by shooting up a gay nightclub or a social service center that helps the developmentally disabled?

When normal people don’t like a policy, they protest or write a letter to the editor. They don’t plant a pressure cooker bomb next to a little boy or stab college students with a butcher knife.

“Let us in or we’ll kill you” is the least compelling immigration argument ever.

We have our current wave of terror despite legalizing some 100,000 Muslims a year. If we don’t manage 100,000 this year, they are saying that maybe more of the 100,000 from a few years ago will join ISIS and start killing us. And if we don’t legalize 100,000 five years from now, the 100,000 coming into the country this year will become the terrorists of tomorrow.

That’s not an immigration policy. It’s a hostage crisis.

Pretty much, yeah. And I’ll repeat yet again my question for the Progtards: how many of us have to be slaughtered by these freaks before the demands of your politically-correct self-righteousness will be met?

Poetic justice served piping hot update! And what have we learned today, kids?

French street artist Combo was physically assaulted over his latest art work.

It was very offensive and local Muslims demanded he take it down.

Four Muslims in Porte Dorée (the Golden door), a ghetto east of Paris, beat artist Combo after he refused to take down his Coexist street art. Combo suffered a dislocated shoulder, bruises and a black eye.

Completely hilarious, but the smart money’s on this blockhead not having learned a single damned thing. Anybody with any sense at all already knows that the only problem undermining those stupid “Coexist” stickers is the Islamic crescent at the beginning; all the rest of us seem able to get along just fine, thanks. Guess ol’ Combo missed the “convert or die” bit from Islamic dogma, despite their having screamed it at us for the last, oh, thousand years or so.

  1. I wonder if I can get Senator Ted Cruz to read Knish’s column into the Senate record?

  2. The utterly infuriating part is that just two months ago nobody minded sending Cubans back to face punishment for trying to escape that island prison.

  3. @Veeshir
    Oh plenty of the decent, honorable, and intelligent people in the country minded. At least of those who even knew it happened, which wasn’t unfortunately the majority of them because of all the *crickets* from the liar media…
